Dear Jerry, I just want to thank you for all you’ve done in the past few years. You’ve helped protect me and looked out for me and my daughter. I never could have gotten go this happy place if it hadn’t been for the wise decision to work with you. You have been one of the angels who helped turn this terrible divorce into the best thing that ever happened to me. Thank you.

Judy, I am deeply grateful for how you fought for me and kept your cool through the negotiations. You always kept my best interests and legal rights in mind. I am at peace today knowing that I am going to be OK. I am deeply grateful for Judy’s help and would highly recommend her.
